Sentencing delay for Dansville pastor angers some


By Jane Flasch

It is the first time they have faced the foster care provider who admitted having sexual contact with their five-year-old child. Thursday, the girl’s biological parents left a Livingston County courtroom frustrated that the proceeding to send Alan Fox to prison never happened.

“I was frustrated and disgusted,” said James, who is the girl’s father. 13WHAM News is not using his last name to protect the identity of his child.

The mother of the girl, who is now six years old, was also in court. The family said they were ignored when they first reported suspicions of the abuse which the child described during a visitation last spring.

This court delay adds to their frustration with a legal system that has not kept them informed.
